welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

Have a friend visiting with her family this week and she was asking for suggestions on what to do if the day they visit is really cold. Washington, DC offers so many fun things to do with your family even if you visit during the winter months. Here are just a few of my favorite […]

Places to Visit in DC at Winter

When Heather reached out to me about a holiday themed family session I was so excited. She rented a sequence dress from Rent the Runway and her husband bought a velvet green coat. We met at the DAR near the White House for the perfect setting. The entire family was amazing even in the cold […]

A Holiday Family Session at the DAR

I love when families grow with me. I took the first portraits of the Fleming family years ago. I have grown as much in photography as their little girls have in height this past year. It makes all the difference when you client believe in you. I love the colors they chose: cream and camel […]

Family Photos in the Supreme Court Garden

Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. I love the coziness the season brings. We turn to lights and candles and look for ways to find warmth. Evenings beside the fire or spent with friends and hot drinks. This session brought me all the “hygge” feelings of home. I met the D family […]

Washington, DC Family Photographer | Cozy holiday family session

This sweet mama reached out to me last minute wondering if I could fit them into my schedule. I’m so glad she did! They chose the Supreme Court and Capitol as their session location. I love this spot for many reasons. You have lovely gardens on the side of the Supreme Court, both buildings have […]

Winter Family Session at the Capitol | U.S. Capitol Photographer

There is something I love about photographing newborns in the winter. It’s so cold outside but the warmth and sweet feelings of a newborn is so comforting. The light on a winter day is always good due to no leaves on the trees outside letting in the maximum natural light. Little Eleanor was so content […]

I recently took their baby sister’s newborn photo session and it was so fun seeing them all again so soon. Their mother does such an incredible job with choosing their outfits with all the […]

Family Photos at Bishop’s Garden

I adore Old Town, Alexandria. It’s classic feel with the cobblestone streets and beautiful alleys. We had such a beautiful day for this session. It feels like just yesterday I took little Diana’s newborn photos. Being a Washington, DC Newborn Photographer is one of my biggest joys in life. The biggest compliment to any photographer […]

Family Photos in Old Town Alexandria | Alexandria, VA Family Photography

This family is very dear to me and if you have been around here for some time you probably recognize them. I was the children’s nanny for 6.5 years. It was an absolute joy to watch them grow and it’s hard to believe they are getting so big. We always find a pretty spot in […]

Fall Family Session in Tenleytown, DC

I adore families and lots of children and lovely DC locations. This family portrait session offered all my favorite things. The parents dressed five children and drove all the way from Leesburg and arrived by 7am. I have no idea how they managed it all and everyone was so relaxed and comfortable. We started by […]
